Re: Foil kite jumping techniques

souls are pretty soft on landings.. there are only 2 things you can get wrong not to ride away:
- choke the kite (either trim it or let the bar out a bit while descending)
- not redirecting kite fast enough..

Re: Self launch and self land option

I understand how some guys are against the hook on the rear bridle and would rather/strongly recommend: 1. using the backstall method 2. emergency centerline 3. edge of wind window and then backstall I sorta wish kitesurfing was popular enough around here that there was more than 1 or 2 guys on the...

Re: Flysurfer Soul 12m or 15m

if you get the 15 - get a racier wing..the bigger ones will make you feel overpowered.. but don't get fooled... you can ride race wings (at least the new ones) pretty slow... the stall speed is a function of the weight you put down on the wing.. so if you hang most of the weight on the kite you can ...

Re: When to replace bar?

In 20 years of kiting I never retired a bar. I converted them all to Franken bars or sold them with other kites. My oldest right now is probably 10yo - but not in the original configuration for sure. Also never broke a bar. You Sir, have not kitelooped enough or rode powered.. I broke bars in half,...

Re: Jumping tips for foil kite on hydrofoil

633 is not the greatest for big airs and will probably break on bad landing.. for me it felt like it has too much lift when speeding up for a jump. To the OP, you should check your gear.. some beginner foils are in fact are very hard to use for big airs.. Ideally you want freerace carbon rig from a...

Re: Jumping tips for foil kite on hydrofoil

can you do more then 15ft on TT? If not, then maybe go back and practice until you get to, say, 30ft? I don't think that kite control is any different between jumping foil and TT, you just tend to get more speed and hold more power with HF (well, at least with lower wind/bigger sizes)...As far as li...
